This year Northeast Colorado BOCES will be offering the following menu of professional development on our Consortium Professional Development Days.
Teaching with Love and Logic
Today’s educators are faced with a dizzying array of competing demands related to implementing new curricula, student testing and other mandates. At the same time, most are seeing ever-increasing numbers of students with significant emotional and behavioral problems, a challenge to manage and maintain a peaceful, positive and effective classroom. That’s why we at Love and Logic have devoted the last four decades to distilling complex theory into a menu of simple yet effective tools.
